Did any AKs ever have folding bayonets?

I thought I saw one once but I can't remember.

I only know of the chinese folding bayos, they fold into part of the lower handguard.

...Is that what you mean.

Right ,but only the full stocked ones used the folding spike style .
The underfolders used the removable blade type bayonet .
In fact I'm looking for one right now for a type 56-1 underfolder .

Cool , got a picture ?

All the ones I have seen or found pics of on the web
had the cheesy detachable red bayo that looks like
it was made from an old chrome car bumper .

One more thing , does it have the cutout in the bottom
handguard for the spike ?

If you send me your email address, I can send you a pic. I'm not to good at posting pics.

Yes it does have a cutout in the handguard for the spike.

Here is a link that has some info about them.

securityarms.com/20010315/galleryfiles/2700/2795.htm

It's the only info I've found so far. This is my 1st Ak in a long time. I don't know much about them either.
